5 Tips on What To Look For When Buying Diamonds For Wedding Rings

A wedding, or an engagement in  Sekiu, is one of the most important events in every couple’s life. One of the best ways of making the experience memorable is by choosing the right ring to symbolize the love you have for one another. While most couples would like to get the most beautiful ring they can lay their hands on, budgetary restrictions can be a challenge. However, it is possible to find an ideal ring based on your budget.

For anyone looking for precious diamonds for engagement rings and wedding rings in Sekiu, they should consider going about the process carefully. There are various dealers in the market, some of who may sell you fake diamonds. Here are a few useful tips on what to look for when looking for precious diamonds for engagement or wedding rings.

Consider the Diamond Cut

1. Any expert will tell you that the cut is the most important thing to consider when buying diamonds in Sekiu. The main reason behind this is that the cut usually influences the sparkle. A diamond may be clear and feature a high quality color grade, but if the cut is poor, it may still appear dull. The dealer you buy from should be able to cut your diamond in the proper proportions. If your budget can allow it, choose a diamond with the highest cut grade.

Diamond Color

2.  Contrary to common belief, lack of color in your diamonds denotes a higher color grade. Some people go for pale yellow diamond, without knowing that it is low quality. To avoid such an experience, ask the diamond dealer to give you grade H or higher. Near colorless diamond ranges from grade G to J, but it may be quite expensive.

Clarity Diamonds can also be chosen based on their clarity levels.

3. This is usually not a very important factor to consider, considering that the precious stones usually come with imperfections, known as inclusions. These tiny imperfections may not be easy to detect, and they may only be seen through a microscope. However, the fewer there are, the higher the clarity grade of your diamonds. If your budget can be stretched further, consider buying grade VS1 grade or higher.

Consider the Diamond’s Carat Weight

4.  Unlike common belief, carat does not mean the size of the diamond, but its actual weight. Carat and cut must be considered side by side, because no matter the size of the diamond, a poor cut grade can make your precious stones look smaller. Another important fact to keep in mind is that the more the weight of the diamond, the more you will pay for it. Therefore, you should consider going for a less heavy stone with a high grade cut.

Ask for Proof of Certification

5. There is nothing as unfortunate as buying diamonds for your special event only to realize that they are of poor quality, or that they were stolen. To avoid such an eventuality, always ask the dealer in Sekiu to show you the copy of diamond certification.

With these tips, you should be able to make the right choice when buying precious diamonds in Sekiu for you engagement or wedding.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

In an ideal world with unlimited budgets and an infinite supply of diamonds, everyone would have beautifully cut "D Flawless" diamonds. In the real world every diamond is unique. There are plenty of gorgeous diamonds to go around - you just need to know how to find one. Choosing a diamond is about balancing several factors to make the most of your budget. Each factor contributes to the beauty and prestige of your diamond. I will explain these factors so you will be prepared to make an informed decision about your diamond purchase.

FACTOR 1: CARAT WEIGHT

People often use the word Carat when discussing how big a diamond is, however "Carat" actually refers to the weight of a diamond. There is no rule as to what carat weight you should buy, but you'll doubtless have heard that "bigger is better." If you ask me, I think bigger is great but you shouldn't forget about the other aspects of a diamond's quality.

A useful tip: if you're looking at Certified Diamonds, you may find it valuable to compare the diameters of different diamonds. Since every diamond is individually cut, some may appear larger than others of the same weight.

FACTOR 2: SHAPE

Approximately 75% of diamonds sold worldwide are Round Brilliants. Rounds diamonds are the most popular, most brilliant, and most expensive. If you are purchasing a diamond as a surprise, Round Brilliant is generally your safest bet.

There is no real hierarchy of shapes being better or worse - it is truly a matter of personal preference. Princess Cuts are the second most popular, and a classic alternative to round diamonds. Cushion Cuts are trendy and have a beautiful vintage look. If you want something different but not too crazy, try an Oval Cut, Asscher Cut, or Radiant Cut diamond.

While no shape is better, there are some significant differences between shapes. Take for example, the radiant cut vs the emerald cut. Though they are a similar shape, the extra facets of the radiant cut give it additional fire and sparkle. If you prefer the emerald cut's understated elegance, consider that it's easier to spot any imperfections and select a higher clarity grade.

Another tip: Diamonds (even round diamonds) may not be perfectly symmetrical. It's nothing to worry about if your diamond's width does not precisely match its height, but if your diamond is much longer than it is wide it may not be what you're expecting. This is especially the case in shapes like Cushion and Oval, where a more asymmetrical diamond might look "skinny", with much of the fire and brilliance concentrated at the ends.

FACTOR 3: CUT

"Cut" refers to a diamond's finish and proportions, and is critical in determining its beauty. Getting the angles right ensures a beautiful diamond that's full of life. In many cases it can be more difficult to spot flaws in a fiery, brilliant diamond. Cut is generally graded in five categories: Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent. Excellent is the highest graded awarded by GIA (whereas other labs may use terms like "ideal" or numbers like "0"). If you want to play safe, stick to "Very Good" and "Excellent" cuts when you choose your diamond.

FACTOR 4: CLARITY

Almost all diamonds have naturally¬ occurring features called "inclusions." Inclusions form as the diamond crystallizes deep underground, and they are unique to each diamond. They take many different forms, and can help you identify a diamond as your own. However, large and prominent inclusions can detract from the beauty of a diamond.

There are many different types of inclusions, and not all are created equal. If your diamond certificate has an "inclusion map," check where the inclusions are. Try to find a diamond with inclusions near the edge where they will be masked by sparkle or hidden by the setting of your diamond. If your budget is limited, I recommend buying "SI" clarity or better. "SI" stands for "Slightly Included." With close inspection you can usually spot the inclusions in an SI¬ graded diamond, but these inclusions will most likely not be visible once your diamond is set in jewellery. If you want to be sure your diamond will look "eye clean", even up close, I recommend selecting a VS2 clarity diamond or better. "VS" stands for "Very Slight Inclusion," and imperfections in VS clarity stones are rarely seen by the naked eye.

FACTOR 5: COLOUR

The term "colour" usually refers to how much warm tint is in a diamond. The scale ranges from D (colorless) to Z (very strongly tinted yellow or brown). Pure white diamonds are considered more desirable, and are more expensive. Warmer¬-hued diamonds (such as K, L, and M) are not necessarily less attractive, but they are significantly less valuable.

Conventional wisdom is to select J colour or better. Personally, I love G and H colour diamonds ¬- they hit the "sweet spot" where most people will not notice colour in the diamond unless they're doing a direct comparison. However, an I or J colour diamond that is well cut and has a lot of life can give you a beautiful diamond at a bargain price.

Depending on how they are cut, different diamonds will display colour differently. This is why colour grades are assigned by looking at a diamond upside¬down. Generally, more¬ brilliant diamonds show their colour less than less brilliant diamonds.

FACTOR 6: FLUORESCENCE

Fluorescence has a bad rep, and most of it is unfair. Diamond Fluorescence refers to how a diamond responds when subjected to ultra¬violet light. Fluorescent diamonds can glow any one of several colours, but the most common is blue. In rare cases fluorescence can cause your diamond to have a milky appearance when viewed in direct daylight. This is most often the case with strong or very strong fluorescence and D/E/F colour diamonds.

However, there are many, many more cases where blue fluorescence is a positive thing. Imagine you were shining a blue light on a yellow diamond... the blue tint can make your diamond look whiter. If your diamond falls in the "near colourless," "lightly tinted," or "tinted" range I recommend looking for medium blue or faint blue fluorescence.

Warning: Green, red, and yellow fluorescence are rare, and they will not have the same benefit. If you are interested in a diamond that has strong blue, very strong blue, green, red, or yellow fluorescence, I recommend asking your salesperson to show you your diamond outside in natural daylight. If you're buying online, contact the seller prior to making your purchase so they can examine the diamond first in natural daylight.

FACTOR 7: GRADER

This should always be your first question: Says who? Every diamond grading laboratory has different standards, so comparing diamonds graded by different sources is extremely unreliable. One grader might grade a diamond K SI2, and another might call that same diamond F VS2. I know that sounds crazy, but I see it happen all the time.

The most reputable and consistent grading laboratories are GIA, AGS, IGI, and HRD. GIA is considered the global standard worldwide. AGS is a popular alternative in the U.S.A. while IGI and HRD are more common in Europe.

EGL is tricky because there are EGL labs all over the world, and some of them do a great job while others can be less reliable. We strongly recommend caution when buying an EGL certified diamond unless it's from EGL-¬USA.

Many diamonds are assigned grades by valuation companies and in-¬house graders. If your diamond does not come with a report from a major laboratory, you should always ask where the grader trained. He or she should be certified by a major grading laboratory: GIA, AGS, IGI, or HRD. Be smart and be cautious about reports done by uncertified shop owners, salespeople, or valuation companies.

SELECTING YOUR DIAMOND

You can choose to purchase your diamond online, or from a retail store. If you prefer to purchase your diamond in a retail store, avoid the big chains and shop with smaller independent jewellers. Many independent jewellers are actually significantly less expensive than their large competitors. (You don't have to take my word for it - shop around and you'll quickly learn that this is true). This way you'll buy a better quality diamond and - if you wish - you'll have the opportunity to design your own hand-made engagement ring setting.

If you choose to shop online, I would recommend comparing prices and service across several websites. Be sure that the company ships from your country - otherwise you'll be hit with expensive duty and GST. Always make sure you call or e-mail customer service and have them hand-inspect your diamond before you complete your purchase. Sometimes a diamond may seem like a great deal, but it could have an unfortunate inclusion, asymmetrical cut, or be negatively impacted by fluoresence. And above all, make sure you have an easy and affordable way to return the diamond if it doesn't turn out as you'd hoped. Online shopping is the best way to get a great deal on a diamond for your engagement ring, diamond studs, or pendant - just review this article, be reasonably cautious, and have fun.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

Not all sellers give diamond grading lab reports (also known as ruby high quality reports) to their consumers. So my basic recommendations to you is to keep your cash in your pocket when handling such jewelry experts.

Just purchase a diamond involvement ring if it comes with the original diamond top quality report.

A laboratory record is an independent analysis of the 4Cs of a loose ruby and includes an outlined diagram of the stone's clarity features as well as a graphic depiction of the rock's percentages. Having such a report permits you to compare diamonds of various top qualities as well as eventually helps you make a more notified purchasing decision.

A store may cut corners as well as not supply a lab report or a deceitful seller might give a fake one due to the time, trouble and also cost he'll bear to obtaining a rock graded.

Yeah - there is a cost for rating a ruby (though that price is eventually paid by the customer), plus the delivery and also insurance policy costs for sending out the diamond to the lab. And also let us not fail to remember the chance cost of a jewelry expert not having the ruby in his shop offer for sale for a few weeks while the grading happens.

However, a diamond rating report may also not be offered due to the fact that the costs to obtaining one may affect too heavily on the last cost of the ring. For instance, a 0.3 ct diamond ring setting you back $250 state, might cost around $75 to be rated and have the record number inscribed on the band on the diamond. As you search for that ideal ruby engagement ring for your sweetie, you'll locate that there is an alphabet soup of labs asserting to give reliable diamond rating records. However I would just put my money on ...

The Premier Ruby Grading Laboratory Information

Yes, all ruby high quality records are not produced equivalent. Within the sector, it is an agreement that both top laboratories are GIA-GTL (Gemological Institute of The U.S.A.'s Treasure Trade Laboratory) and the AGS (American Gem Society Laboratories).

The GCAL (Gem Accreditation and Assurance Laboratory) additionally supplies highly pertained to reports or "ruby certifications" as they are described by GCAL. The GIA has the best worldwide track record for self-reliance as well as uniformity. Because of their continuous shade and quality strictness guidelines, the world's largest and most costly rubies have been sent out there for grading decades. In 2006, GIA-GTL included a two-dimensional cut grading system for round dazzling diamonds.

AGS utilizes the strictest cut requirements in the industry. It makes use of a three-dimensional light performance metric that can quality several ruby shapes. As a matter of fact, it is the only cut grading system that is identified by the clinical neighborhood.

Just what is even more, its Ruby Quality Document makes use of a distinct and exclusive 0 to 10 grading system to review the 4 Cs - a system which is simpler to understand compared to GIA's grading system. Actually, AGS even goes the extra step by corresponding their 0-10 rating range to other types of score. For instance, the standard VS1 diamond clarity score is a 3 on the AGS Diamond High Quality Record.

Diamond Coverage - The Drawbacks

1. Diamond grading is not standardized or regulated as well as therefore you may find rate 2 labs that utilize looser standards to the tier 1 grading laboratories stated above. If you purchase a ruby that has been graded by a tier 2 laboratory, you could end up paying a lot more for a minimal quality diamond. So for example, a diamond ranked a "F" in shade at a rate 2 lab could get a G, H, or reduced color score at a more trusted laboratory. The industry additionally discounts diamonds graded by minimal recognized labs by regarding 15-30% or even more. So either you only buy a ruby graded by a tier 1 lab or you accept that you may be buying a lesser quality diamond than exactly what is mentioned on the record if that diamond is rated by a minimal well-known laboratory.

2. Many large store have big agreements with minimal recognized labs with "softer" ruby grading guidelines. Some of these softer laboratories placed "recommended substitute values" on the laboratory reports - worths which are higher compared to just what stores plans offer the rubies for. So a salesman in a store may claim to you, "Check out the great bargain you are obtaining right here. We are offering you this ruby engagement ring for $2500 yet the record states that the recommended replacement worth is $4000." Wow - what an offer - NOT! This is why it is much better that you rely on only independent tier 1 labs.

Additionally bear in mind that reliable diamond rating records are not assessments and also don't supply evaluation figures. Ruby appraisals are frequently grossly filled with air and also are not something you'll intend to depend on.

3. Ruby reports are filled with disclaimers that specify that nothing is "accredited" or ensured which the labs are not responsible for mistakes. Actually, the GIA offers a disclaimer of kinds on their site regarding the use of the word "certify." The website says:

"It is inaccurate to state that trainees, grads, their organisations, or specific gems are "accredited" by GIA. The Gemological Institute of America does not license any individual or anything. Neither a trainee neither a graduate that has actually been awarded a certification or diploma, nor a gem which has been graded or recognized by GIA has been accredited by GIA".

So it is possible that you the customer is left holding the bag should a mistake in a report is later uncovered. Courts have regularly ruled that vendors, not laboratories, are responsible for such errors. Why? Because the laboratories indicated in advance that their reports could not be held accountable.

Thankfully, there are a couple ways to offer on your own extra buyer security:

A. You could fly to India where jewelry experts use a life time buyback plan to their clients. Also expensive to fly?

B. You might locate among the 20% of United States jewelry experts that sell completely bound diamonds. These are rubies that are sold with lifetime damage, lifetime trade-in and life time buyback policies.

C. Not as good a solution as acquiring a fully bonded ruby however you can acquire a ruby that includes an actual "certificate" and also not a record. "Certified rubies do come with guaranties" albeit for much shorter durations.

Certification Some vendors describe a "diamond report" as a "qualified diamond" yet practically this is not deal with. From a legal point ofview, a diamond record is a simply a professional viewpoint though in reality, elements of a diamond rating report are not simply viewpoints.

As an example, a ruby's carat (weight) can be accurately identified as well as its cut quality by determining its optical performance or by describing a computer system version. A certification on the other hand is a declaration of truth - a file for which the provider accepts lawful duty and will make restitution to the customer for blunders.

Some top ruby grading labs provide both records as well as certifications. AGS uses Ruby Top quality Records (non-certified records) as well as additionally Ruby Top quality Certificates. Diamond Quality Certificates are ready solely for AGS retail jewelry experts as well as uses warranties from taking part American Gem Culture member stores.

GCAL licenses it's diamond grading likewise. Its 100% money-back assurance policy is legitimate for a duration of two years from the day on the relevant certification. This policy makes certain the accuracy of the cut, shade as well as clarity qualities and also the carat weight.

A record or certificate ought to will certainly have a number on it that could or might not be engraved on a ruby. You will certainly be able to get in that number on the web site of the licensing lab to examine a record's credibility.

Aspects Of A Diamond Grading Report Diamond rating reports are constantly progressing yet certain element needs to stay the same. For instance, the:

The Record #. This number is provided as well as recorded in a laboratory's document and also might or might not be etched on a diamond's band. You could get in the record number on a grading laboratory's site to check the authenticity of the diamond high quality report or to obtain even more information about the diamond. Shape & Aspect Design: This is the outline and the cutting style utilized for the facet arrangement. There are 3 standard aspect designs - "fantastic cut, step cut and also blended cutting style" and 12 basic forms that include notables such as round dazzling and also princess cut" rubies.

Measurements: This describes size (not weight) of a diamond. Size includes measurements such as length, size, weight and size. A measurement is usually provided to the hundredth of a millimeter. Dimensions play a substantial function in just how a ruby glows.

Carat weight Weight: The weight of a ruby is determined to the hundredth of a carat weight and some also offer such step to the thousandth of a carat (1.123 ct.). Carat is one of the most unbiased and the most convenient to comprehend of the 4Cs due to the fact that all one has to do is weight the rock. Color Grade: This informs you the degree of color lack in the ruby. The less shade the higher the quality.

Rubies are commonly graded from D-Z; the closer to "D" the whiter the ruby. You need to never ever see diamond color variety such as (G-H, I-J-K, and so forth) on a diamond record. You ought to just see shade ranges on evaluations for rocks that are mounted.

Clearness Quality: Virtually every ruby has inner imperfections called inclusions and also outside imperfections called acnes. A ruby is graded according to the size, type, place and quantity of these flaws.

Clearness grades vary from Remarkable (FL) - Included. Labs make use of a pair specialists to grade the quality of a ruby in order to generate a much more accurate reading.

Cut Quality: Extra current diamond reports include a cut grade for standard round brilliant rubies. Cut takes into factor to consider the radiance, fire and scintillation of the ruby. Cut quality varies from Outstanding - Poor.

Various other aspects you may find on a ruby record include the gloss, balance, fluorescence and proportion. Armed with this info, you are better able to earn an assessment of the high quality of diamond that is installed in an involvement ring.

5 Tips on What To Look For When Buying Diamonds For Wedding Rings

A wedding, or an engagement in  Sekiu, is one of the most important events in every couple’s life. One of the best ways of making the experience memorable is by choosing the right ring to symbolize the love you have for one another. While most couples would like to get the most beautiful ring they can lay their hands on, budgetary restrictions can be a challenge. However, it is possible to find an ideal ring based on your budget.

For anyone looking for precious diamonds for engagement rings and wedding rings in Sekiu, they should consider going about the process carefully. There are various dealers in the market, some of who may sell you fake diamonds. Here are a few useful tips on what to look for when looking for precious diamonds for engagement or wedding rings.

Consider the Diamond Cut

1. Any expert will tell you that the cut is the most important thing to consider when buying diamonds in Sekiu. The main reason behind this is that the cut usually influences the sparkle. A diamond may be clear and feature a high quality color grade, but if the cut is poor, it may still appear dull. The dealer you buy from should be able to cut your diamond in the proper proportions. If your budget can allow it, choose a diamond with the highest cut grade.

Diamond Color

2.  Contrary to common belief, lack of color in your diamonds denotes a higher color grade. Some people go for pale yellow diamond, without knowing that it is low quality. To avoid such an experience, ask the diamond dealer to give you grade H or higher. Near colorless diamond ranges from grade G to J, but it may be quite expensive.

Clarity Diamonds can also be chosen based on their clarity levels.

3. This is usually not a very important factor to consider, considering that the precious stones usually come with imperfections, known as inclusions. These tiny imperfections may not be easy to detect, and they may only be seen through a microscope. However, the fewer there are, the higher the clarity grade of your diamonds. If your budget can be stretched further, consider buying grade VS1 grade or higher.

Consider the Diamond’s Carat Weight

4.  Unlike common belief, carat does not mean the size of the diamond, but its actual weight. Carat and cut must be considered side by side, because no matter the size of the diamond, a poor cut grade can make your precious stones look smaller. Another important fact to keep in mind is that the more the weight of the diamond, the more you will pay for it. Therefore, you should consider going for a less heavy stone with a high grade cut.

Ask for Proof of Certification

5. There is nothing as unfortunate as buying diamonds for your special event only to realize that they are of poor quality, or that they were stolen. To avoid such an eventuality, always ask the dealer in Sekiu to show you the copy of diamond certification.

With these tips, you should be able to make the right choice when buying precious diamonds in Sekiu for you engagement or wedding.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

Not all sellers give ruby grading lab reports (also known as ruby top quality reports) to their consumers. So my general guidance to you is to keep your money in your pocket when taking care of such jewelry experts.

Just purchase a ruby involvement ring if it features the initial ruby high quality report.

A laboratory report is an independent examination of the 4Cs of a loosened diamond and also consists of a plotted representation of the rock's clearness attributes and a graphic depiction of the rock's percentages. Having such a record allows you to compare rubies of various top qualities and ultimately aids you make an even more educated purchasing choice.

A retailer might cut edges and also not give a lab report or an unethical seller may offer a phony one as a result of the time, trouble and also expense he'll birth to obtaining a rock rated.

Yeah - there is a price for rating a ruby (though that cost is at some point paid by the customer), plus the delivery and also insurance coverage charges for sending out the ruby to the lab. As well as let us not neglect the opportunity price of a jeweler not having the ruby in his store available for a few weeks while the grading takes location.

Nonetheless, a ruby grading report could additionally not be readily available because the prices to getting one may affect also greatly on the last cost of the ring. For instance, a 0.3 ct ruby ring setting you back $250 claim, might cost around $75 to be graded and have the report number inscribed on the band on the ruby. As you browse for that perfect diamond involvement ring for your sweetheart, you'll locate that there is a hodgepodge of labs asserting to offer credible diamond grading reports. Yet I would just put my cash on ...

The Premier Diamond Grading Laboratory News

Yes, all ruby quality records are not developed equivalent. Within the sector, it is a consensus that both premier laboratories are GIA-GTL (Gemological Institute of America's Treasure Trade Lab) and also the AGS (American Treasure Society Laboratories).

The GCAL (Gem Certification as well as Guarantee Lab) additionally uses very regarded reports or "ruby certificates" as they are described by GCAL. The GIA has the greatest international reputation for independence as well as uniformity. Because of their consistent color and clarity strictness standards, the globe's biggest and most pricey diamonds have been sent there for grading decades. In 2006, GIA-GTL included a two-dimensional cut grading system for round brilliant rubies.

AGS utilizes the most strict cut requirements in the market. It uses a three-dimensional light efficiency metric that can grade numerous ruby shapes. As a matter of fact, it is the only cut grading system that is recognized by the scientific area.

What is even more, its Ruby Quality Paper utilizes an one-of-a-kind and proprietary 0 to 10 grading system to examine the 4 Cs - a system which is easier to comprehend compared to GIA's grading system. Actually, AGS also goes the extra action by relating their 0-10 ranking scale to other kinds of score. As an example, the traditional VS1 ruby quality rating is a 3 on the AGS Ruby Top Quality Document.

Diamond Coverage - The Drawbacks

1. Ruby grading is not standardized or regulated and also thus you may come throughout rate 2 labs that use looser guidelines to the tier 1 grading labs discussed above. If you purchase a ruby that has actually been rated by a rate 2 laboratory, you could finish up paying a lot more for a lesser high quality diamond. So as an example, a ruby rated a "F" in shade at a rate 2 laboratory may obtain a G, H, or reduced shade rating at a more reliable lab. The industry additionally marks down rubies rated by lower well-known labs by regarding 15-30% or more. So either you just get a diamond graded by a tier 1 laboratory or you accept that you may be buying a lower top quality diamond compared to exactly what is mentioned on the report if that ruby is rated by a lesser well-known lab.

2. Many large chain shops have substantial contracts with minimal known laboratories with "softer" ruby grading standards. Some of these softer laboratories placed "recommended replacement worths" on the lab reports - values which are greater than what shops intends market the diamonds for. So a sales representative in a chain store could claim to you, "Take a look at the good deal you are getting here. We are offering you this ruby involvement ring for $2500 yet the record states that the recommended substitute worth is $4000." Wow - exactly what a deal - NOT! This is why it is better that you rely on just independent rate 1 labs.

Likewise bear in mind that reputable diamond rating records are not assessments and don't provide assessment figures. Ruby assessments are often blatantly filled with air as well as are not something you'll intend to depend on.

3. Diamond records are riddled with please notes that specify that absolutely nothing is "licensed" or assured which the laboratories are not accountable for mistakes. As a matter of fact, the GIA offers a please note of kinds on their internet site regarding using the word "license." The website states:

"It is wrong to state that pupils, graduates, their companies, or specific gemstones are "licensed" by GIA. The Gemological Institute of America does not certify any individual or anything. Neither a student neither a grad that has been granted a certificate or diploma, neither a gem which has been graded or recognized by GIA has actually been certified by GIA".

So it is possible that you the consumer is left holding the bag ought to a mistake in a report is later on discovered. Courts have actually regularly ruled that vendors, not laboratories, are accountable for such mistakes. Why? Because the labs suggested in advance that their reports could not be held accountable.

The good news is, there are a couple methods to provide on your own a lot more purchaser security:

A. You can fly to India where jewelers provide a life time buyback plan to their customers. Too expensive to fly?

B. You could find among the 20% of US jewelry experts that offer fully adhered diamonds. These are diamonds that are offered with life time breakage, life time trade-in and lifetime buyback policies.

C. Not as great a solution as acquiring a totally bonded ruby but you could get a ruby that comes with an actual "certification" and not a report. "Licensed diamonds do come with warranties" albeit for much shorter durations.

Accreditation Some sellers refer to a "diamond record" as a "licensed ruby" but technically this is not deal with. From a legal viewpoint, a ruby record is a merely a skilled opinion though in actuality, elements of a ruby rating record are not just opinions.

For instance, a ruby's carat weight (weight) could be accurately determined along with its cut grade by determining its optical efficiency or by describing a computer system model. A certification on the other hand is a declaration of reality - a record for which the company accepts lawful duty and also will make restitution to the consumer for errors.

Some top diamond grading laboratories use both reports as well as certificates. AGS supplies Ruby High quality Documents (non-certified records) and Diamond Quality Certificates. Diamond Top quality Certifications are prepared exclusively for AGS retail jewelry experts as well as offers guaranties from taking part American Gem Society participant shops.

GCAL certifies it's diamond grading likewise. Its 100% money-back guarantee policy is legitimate for a period of two years from the date on the applicable certification. This plan guarantees the precision of the cut, color and clarity qualities and the carat weight.

A report or certificate must will certainly have a number on it that may or could not be inscribed on a diamond. You will certainly be able to enter that number on the internet site of the certifying lab to examine a record's validity.

Aspects Of A Diamond Grading Report Ruby grading records are constantly advancing yet particular element ought to remain the same. As an example, the:

The Report #. This number is provided and also tape-recorded in a lab's record and could or might not be engraved on a ruby's girdle. You could go into the report number on a grading laboratory's web site to examine the authenticity of the diamond high quality report or to obtain more details regarding the diamond. Shape & Facet Style: This is the overview and also the cutting design utilized for the aspect setup. There are 3 fundamental aspect designs - "great cut, step cut and blended cutting style" as well as 12 standard shapes that include notables such as rounded brilliant as well as princess cut" rubies.

Dimensions: This describes dimension (not weight) of a diamond. Dimension includes measurements such as size, width, weight and size. A measurement is commonly detailed to the hundredth of a millimeter. Measurements play a substantial function in exactly how a diamond shines.

Carat weight Weight: The weight of a ruby is determined to the hundredth of a carat and also some also supply such measure to the thousandth of a carat (1.123 ct.). Carat is one of the most objective and the easiest to recognize of the 4Cs because all one needs to do is weight the rock. Shade Grade: This informs you the degree of shade absence in the ruby. The less shade the higher the grade.

Diamonds are commonly graded from D-Z; the closer to "D" the whiter the ruby. You need to never see diamond shade range such as (G-H, I-J-K, and so forth) on a ruby record. You need to only see shade arrays on appraisals for stones that are installed.

Clearness Grade: Virtually every ruby has actually inner flaws called incorporations as well as external imperfections called acnes. A ruby is rated according to the dimension, type, location and quantity of these imperfections.

Clearness grades vary from Flawless (FL) - Consisted Of. Labs utilize a pair specialists to grade the clearness of a ruby in order to create an extra accurate reading.

Cut Grade: Extra recent ruby records include a cut grade for common round dazzling rubies. Cut takes into account the brilliance, fire and scintillation of the ruby. Cut grade ranges from Exceptional - Poor.

Sekiu How to Buy a Diamond And The 4 Biggest Mistakes When Buying a Diamond

Rubies are naturally offered in an extremely wide variety of colors. Lots of people recognize regarding colorless rubies and also GIA's shade grading system that is made use of to categorize a diamond's body shade ... you recognize D, E, F, and so on. This shade grading system is only used to categorize the most usual ruby body shade of yellow however anytime a ruby is located in an additional color like pink, blue, eco-friendly, and so on; after that this ruby is referred to as a "" fancy diamond"".

Natural Fancy diamonds could be extremely costly and sometimes much more pricey than a similar size anemic diamond. An excellent example of a Fancy diamond is the notorious 45.52 carat fancy deep blue ruby, the Hope Ruby, which is on display screen in the Smithsonian Natural Background Gallery in Washington, DC.

A color enhanced ruby is a 100% all-natural diamond that has actually had its color transformed. As well as most importantly, shade boosted rubies come in a really large selection of colors at really cost effective prices!

A little history- For lots of, several years it has been well recognized that a ruby's color can be "" enhanced"" by putting a bit of colored material externally of a ruby and just like magic ... a diamond that had a visible yellowish shade would transform to an extra appealing near colorless ruby. Sadly, this kind of shade improved ruby could change back to its initial body color if this tinted compound was unintentionally gotten rid of. In even more current years, the technology of shade improved diamonds has gone extremely advanced. It is currently possible to completely transform the shade of a diamond! These procedures are taken into consideration irreversible due to the fact that it does continue to be stable when revealed to daily normal problems. The color will certainly not discolor if exposed to sunlight or be washed off by harsh chemicals.

Just how is it done? The preferred end result of any of these treatments is to have a more valuable ruby. A less valuable diamond would certainly be a diamond that has a low body color or sometimes a lower clearness. The color enhanced ruby therapy business understand if they start with a certain kind of ruby and also procedure it for a particular quantity of time that they must wind up with a particular color however it does not constantly function that means. This is a science that does need some art in their procedures ... the only procedure that offers constant outcomes is the coating process.

The 3 processes are as adheres to- Refine # 1- HPHT Color Boosted Diamonds- High Stress/ High Temperature Level (HPHT) treatment can improve the color of specific sorts of brown diamonds and also therefore raise their worth. General Electric has established a process that pretty much is a mechanical simulation of a diamond's creation in nature. The color boosted ruby will certainly be warmed up to a very high temperature level under an extremely high, supported stress. Mistakes in the crystal framework are then repositioned resulting in a modification of the ruby's color. Due to the fact that the conditions of HPHT are extremely comparable to ruby's initial formation, only a well outfitted laboratory will certainly be able to positively determine this kind of shade enhanced diamond. HPHT wased initially made use of to transform yellow-colored rubies into even more valuable fancy tinted enhanced diamonds, today it is likewise utilized to change some undesirable brownish rubies right into better colorless colored improved diamonds.

Process # 2- Irradiated Color Improved Diamonds- OK ... do not begin obtaining all thrilled since you saw words irradiated! This is a 100% secure process that is extremely comparable to what is utilized to preserve food by exposing it to a stream of Gamma rays. The color enhanced diamond process is performed in a number of various methods but the outcomes are just the same. You start with a low shade (P, Q, R, and so on) 100% all-natural diamond that has already been cut and polished, after that it is revealed to a stream of quick electrons. During this part of the process the diamond will resort to an extremely dark shade due to the fact that some of the atoms in the ruby's crystal structure have currently been disjointed as well as this in turn has influenced the way light go through the ruby. Next the diamond goes with a regulated heating (annealing) procedure, this allows some of those atoms to move (partly repaired) in order to acquire a desired shade.

Refine # 3- Covered Shade Enhanced Diamonds- The coating on polished rubies refers to a thin man-made layer that modifies the shade of the diamond. The finishing could either be of the desired color or can cause a tinted interference-effect. Sadly often this process is done to trick a customer. It is a reasonably easy process to perform, it has actually been around for years (although the layers products are a lot better currently), and also it does not need a lot of expensive advanced equipment. Lately, I've seen some pink coated rubies on the market, they are really eye-catching ... as well as certainly you would certainly have to purchase them recognizing that they have been covered and follow your jeweler's guidelines about having and taking care of these shade enhanced rubies. The coating can be put on the whole of a ruby's surface area, simply the bottom of the diamond, or to a narrow zone near the band. A well-applied finishing could alter the shade by several color quality. Some finishes can be removed via steaming in acid, solid cleansing remedies, or even home chemicals. Occasionally dots or bigger areas of purple or blue ink are repainted on the ruby to assist counteract a yellow-colored shade. The ruby's setting will typically cover the dots, so they are challenging to see in a placed rock.

So, is a color enhanced diamond right for you? Possibly ... natural fancy color diamonds could be lovely however they are pricey! Shade enhanced rubies are budget-friendly and enable numerous people to own a brilliantly colored diamond. Ask your regional jeweler if they have any type of Fancy diamonds ... either all-natural or color improved diamonds. It is always fascinating, as well as enjoyable, to take a look at something different!

Under typical wear the irradiated as well as HPHT shade improved diamonds will certainly have no problems of the shade fading away. The only factor to consider will be when you should have any type of type of service done on the piece of fashion jewelry. If this kind of shade enhanced ruby is subjected to too much quantities of heat it may affect the shade. The jeweler will certainly need to understand that the diamond is a color boosted ruby before any work is done then the jewelry expert will certainly be able to choose on the most effective strategy. Color improved rubies are now also made use of as the small accent diamonds around a larger anemic diamond. There are many amazing items of jewelry available with small blue, yellow, black, or eco-friendly color boosted rubies.

Since you recognize about shade boosted rubies and also someone attempts to offer you on what they call a natural fancy tinted diamond but it goes to a super bargain rate ... you will certainly know that something just does not sound right about the deal. A record from a recognized grading lab must go along with all all-natural Fancy colored rubies that are marketed as all-natural. If you deal with a reliable company and you have been assured about what you are purchasing, after that you will minimize the possibility of something poor happening to you. Similar to any situation involving a costly acquisition of something that very few individuals are well versed in, education and learning needs to be an important part of your strategy. This is even much more essential if you plan to buy a shade boosted ruby.

Clearness Improved Diamonds - Some Things You Need to Know!

Sekiu

In an ideal world with unlimited budgets and an infinite supply of diamonds, everyone would have beautifully cut "D Flawless" diamonds. In the real world every diamond is unique. There are plenty of gorgeous diamonds to go around - you just need to know how to find one. Choosing a diamond is about balancing several factors to make the most of your budget. Each factor contributes to the beauty and prestige of your diamond. I will explain these factors so you will be prepared to make an informed decision about your diamond purchase.

FACTOR 1: CARAT WEIGHT

People often use the word Carat when discussing how big a diamond is, however "Carat" actually refers to the weight of a diamond. There is no rule as to what carat weight you should buy, but you'll doubtless have heard that "bigger is better." If you ask me, I think bigger is great but you shouldn't forget about the other aspects of a diamond's quality.

A useful tip: if you're looking at Certified Diamonds, you may find it valuable to compare the diameters of different diamonds. Since every diamond is individually cut, some may appear larger than others of the same weight.

FACTOR 2: SHAPE

Approximately 75% of diamonds sold worldwide are Round Brilliants. Rounds diamonds are the most popular, most brilliant, and most expensive. If you are purchasing a diamond as a surprise, Round Brilliant is generally your safest bet.

There is no real hierarchy of shapes being better or worse - it is truly a matter of personal preference. Princess Cuts are the second most popular, and a classic alternative to round diamonds. Cushion Cuts are trendy and have a beautiful vintage look. If you want something different but not too crazy, try an Oval Cut, Asscher Cut, or Radiant Cut diamond.

While no shape is better, there are some significant differences between shapes. Take for example, the radiant cut vs the emerald cut. Though they are a similar shape, the extra facets of the radiant cut give it additional fire and sparkle. If you prefer the emerald cut's understated elegance, consider that it's easier to spot any imperfections and select a higher clarity grade.

Another tip: Diamonds (even round diamonds) may not be perfectly symmetrical. It's nothing to worry about if your diamond's width does not precisely match its height, but if your diamond is much longer than it is wide it may not be what you're expecting. This is especially the case in shapes like Cushion and Oval, where a more asymmetrical diamond might look "skinny", with much of the fire and brilliance concentrated at the ends.

FACTOR 3: CUT

"Cut" refers to a diamond's finish and proportions, and is critical in determining its beauty. Getting the angles right ensures a beautiful diamond that's full of life. In many cases it can be more difficult to spot flaws in a fiery, brilliant diamond. Cut is generally graded in five categories: Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent. Excellent is the highest graded awarded by GIA (whereas other labs may use terms like "ideal" or numbers like "0"). If you want to play safe, stick to "Very Good" and "Excellent" cuts when you choose your diamond.

FACTOR 4: CLARITY

Almost all diamonds have naturally¬ occurring features called "inclusions." Inclusions form as the diamond crystallizes deep underground, and they are unique to each diamond. They take many different forms, and can help you identify a diamond as your own. However, large and prominent inclusions can detract from the beauty of a diamond.

There are many different types of inclusions, and not all are created equal. If your diamond certificate has an "inclusion map," check where the inclusions are. Try to find a diamond with inclusions near the edge where they will be masked by sparkle or hidden by the setting of your diamond. If your budget is limited, I recommend buying "SI" clarity or better. "SI" stands for "Slightly Included." With close inspection you can usually spot the inclusions in an SI¬ graded diamond, but these inclusions will most likely not be visible once your diamond is set in jewellery. If you want to be sure your diamond will look "eye clean", even up close, I recommend selecting a VS2 clarity diamond or better. "VS" stands for "Very Slight Inclusion," and imperfections in VS clarity stones are rarely seen by the naked eye.

FACTOR 5: COLOUR

The term "colour" usually refers to how much warm tint is in a diamond. The scale ranges from D (colorless) to Z (very strongly tinted yellow or brown). Pure white diamonds are considered more desirable, and are more expensive. Warmer¬-hued diamonds (such as K, L, and M) are not necessarily less attractive, but they are significantly less valuable.

Conventional wisdom is to select J colour or better. Personally, I love G and H colour diamonds ¬- they hit the "sweet spot" where most people will not notice colour in the diamond unless they're doing a direct comparison. However, an I or J colour diamond that is well cut and has a lot of life can give you a beautiful diamond at a bargain price.

Depending on how they are cut, different diamonds will display colour differently. This is why colour grades are assigned by looking at a diamond upside¬down. Generally, more¬ brilliant diamonds show their colour less than less brilliant diamonds.

FACTOR 6: FLUORESCENCE

Fluorescence has a bad rep, and most of it is unfair. Diamond Fluorescence refers to how a diamond responds when subjected to ultra¬violet light. Fluorescent diamonds can glow any one of several colours, but the most common is blue. In rare cases fluorescence can cause your diamond to have a milky appearance when viewed in direct daylight. This is most often the case with strong or very strong fluorescence and D/E/F colour diamonds.

However, there are many, many more cases where blue fluorescence is a positive thing. Imagine you were shining a blue light on a yellow diamond... the blue tint can make your diamond look whiter. If your diamond falls in the "near colourless," "lightly tinted," or "tinted" range I recommend looking for medium blue or faint blue fluorescence.

Warning: Green, red, and yellow fluorescence are rare, and they will not have the same benefit. If you are interested in a diamond that has strong blue, very strong blue, green, red, or yellow fluorescence, I recommend asking your salesperson to show you your diamond outside in natural daylight. If you're buying online, contact the seller prior to making your purchase so they can examine the diamond first in natural daylight.

FACTOR 7: GRADER

This should always be your first question: Says who? Every diamond grading laboratory has different standards, so comparing diamonds graded by different sources is extremely unreliable. One grader might grade a diamond K SI2, and another might call that same diamond F VS2. I know that sounds crazy, but I see it happen all the time.

The most reputable and consistent grading laboratories are GIA, AGS, IGI, and HRD. GIA is considered the global standard worldwide. AGS is a popular alternative in the U.S.A. while IGI and HRD are more common in Europe.

EGL is tricky because there are EGL labs all over the world, and some of them do a great job while others can be less reliable. We strongly recommend caution when buying an EGL certified diamond unless it's from EGL-¬USA.

Many diamonds are assigned grades by valuation companies and in-¬house graders. If your diamond does not come with a report from a major laboratory, you should always ask where the grader trained. He or she should be certified by a major grading laboratory: GIA, AGS, IGI, or HRD. Be smart and be cautious about reports done by uncertified shop owners, salespeople, or valuation companies.

SELECTING YOUR DIAMOND

You can choose to purchase your diamond online, or from a retail store. If you prefer to purchase your diamond in a retail store, avoid the big chains and shop with smaller independent jewellers. Many independent jewellers are actually significantly less expensive than their large competitors. (You don't have to take my word for it - shop around and you'll quickly learn that this is true). This way you'll buy a better quality diamond and - if you wish - you'll have the opportunity to design your own hand-made engagement ring setting.

If you choose to shop online, I would recommend comparing prices and service across several websites. Be sure that the company ships from your country - otherwise you'll be hit with expensive duty and GST. Always make sure you call or e-mail customer service and have them hand-inspect your diamond before you complete your purchase. Sometimes a diamond may seem like a great deal, but it could have an unfortunate inclusion, asymmetrical cut, or be negatively impacted by fluoresence. And above all, make sure you have an easy and affordable way to return the diamond if it doesn't turn out as you'd hoped. Online shopping is the best way to get a great deal on a diamond for your engagement ring, diamond studs, or pendant - just review this article, be reasonably cautious, and have fun.
